Announced for May 2021, Hibiki Blossom Harmony 2021 is the new limited edition of Suntory's famous blend which, as its name suggests, is a tribute to the flowering of cherry trees, one of the most traditional events in Japan.
After the Chita Sakura Cask Finish grain whisky from the The Essence Of Suntory series, the House, through this limited edition of Hibiki, is once again highlighting a strong symbol of Japanese culture : the Hanami (period of contemplation of the cherry blossoms).
For the occasion, the Japanese Harmony blend was enriched with single malts aged in Bourbon casks and refined in casks made from Japanese cherry wood ; the sakura casks. The label and the case were specially created with an important place given to cherry blossoms.
Its launch is planned for May 25, 2021 in Japan only, but perhaps some bottles will be destined for the international market afterwards.
